CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) ā€” Wyoming Department of Corrections officials say the state must consider alternatives to lethal injection as a means to execute condemned inmates.

Corrections Department officials are set to urge lawmakers to consider alternative forms of execution at a meeting of the Legislature’s Joint Judiciary Committee in Rawlins next month.

Many states have had problems getting execution drugs, and several inmates in other states have asserted that uncertainty about the source of drugs violates their rights.

The Wyoming Legislature earlier this year rejected considering a bill that would have specified the state use firing squads if lethal drugs weren’t available

Wyoming has one inmate on death row. Dale Wayne Eaton is appealing the death sentence he received in 2004 in the rape and murder of 18-year-old Lisa Marie Kimmell of Billings, Mont.
